On Friday, October 12, 2012, Imagination Stage will host the musical How Far I've Come
, produced by A Place to Be Musical Therapy and written by Amy Stone
, with music by Tom Sweitzer.

Diane Nutting, Imagination Stage's Director of Access and Inclusion says, "Amy Stone
's play aligns with Imagination Stage's belief that the arts can help all young people to unlock their full creative potential and achieve new levels of communication. We are delighted to welcome The company
of How Far I've Come
